MASSPIRG is a statewide student directed and student funded organization with an impressive forty year history of standing up to powerful special interests and winning concrete victories on social and environmental issues.
Recently, we helped to pass policy that will invest $700 million in public transportation in MA, and $3 billion for federal student aid. Last year we registered over 11,000 students to vote in the elections.
One of the reasons we’re so effective is that students here at UMass Boston voted to fund MASSPIRG through a $9 per student, per semester waivable fee. We pool these resources statewide and hire our own professional staff like advocates, lawyers and organizers. Students work together with our staff to run local and statewide campaigns. Our staff works fulltime on behalf of students where big decisions are being made like on Beacon Hill and in Washington DC.
